No trip to Amsterdam is ever complete without a visit to the famous Poezenboot, known in English as the cat boat. This floating cat sanctuary, located on a boat in Amsterdam's picturesque canal belt the Singel, is one of the city's main tourist attractions. It's been on my bucket list ever since I first heard about it and I finally had the chance to stop by this past Tuesday.

Seen a kitty you like? Know that most of them are available for adoption. Those that remain at the cat boat can be financially supported.

Find out more about the cat boat in Amsterdam here.

In other news, Traveling Cats is featured in the August/September edition of the Dutch cat magazine Me And My Cat. Be sure to get a copy if you have the chance. More press clippings here.
